JU-AIR will resume its flights on 17 August

17 passengers and three crew members have died after a JU-52 owned by JU-AIR  crashed on 4 August. The team at JU-AIR is deeply saddened by this accident and is remembering the deceased passengers and crew and their families and friends.

JU-AIR immediately and voluntarily suspended its flight operations as a sign of respect for the dead and their families and friends, and to give the team at JU-AIR time to begin the process of overcoming the accident.

The Federal Office of Civil Aviation has declared that there is no reason why the JU-52 of JU-AIR should not be allowed to fly. Moreover, the findings thus far of the Swiss Transportation Safety Investigation Board STSB give no cause to doubt the operational safety of our aeroplanes. That is why  JU-AIR has decided to resume its flight operations on Friday, 17 August. Should the investigations bring forth any findings that put in question the safety of our flight operations, we would immediately suspend them once again.

Tickets and flight vouchers purchased to date remain valid. However, given that we are short of one of our aeroplanes, flights may be postponed or cancelled. JU-AIR will contact the passengers should it not be able to carry out one of its flights.

Round-the-clock, up-to-date information on our flight operations is available on this website
or by calling 044 824 55 00.
